I am finding the 2nd year after my husband's death to be significantly worse. I guess I was in shock. Busy with insurance and wills and bills left me little time to feel things. I also was in griefshare but when I returned to TX my griefshare was no longer available and others just weren't at convenient times.
I have narrowed down the biggest problem. My husband's physical condition when he had his accident was horrible. So as quality of life goes - I knew he was in a better place. But as time goes on (and facebook constantly reminds me) there were good times. That makes me miss him so much more - remembering him before his condition took so much from him. And in TX I have no support. No church. No Bible study and only 1 or 2 friends. My kids are too busy to see me often so I am lonely and depressed. Just a few months ago I felt vibrant and happy and had made peace with things. What a difference a place makes
